Now that was funny! Just curious, who was generally rated higher in draft? Also, I had heard that Timmons might be better suited for our defensive style. Thoughts anyone?

It is early, but still would have loved to have Poz as a Steeler. I am a Penn St. fan also.

good point Mosca like you cant rag on Timmons for not starting because the steelers have one of the best linebacking cores in the league it would have been a complete shock of Timmons took over the starting Job from on of them. Plus add the fact that was injured during preseason. Also we didnt draft Timmons for right the present we drafted him for the future so lets wait. Dont forget the kid only started one year at FSU.

Poz is playing good on a team that's not very good that needed him to start.

Timmons is playing ST on a team that had Harrison pegged in as the ROLB starter.

Timmons was a first round draft pick.

Poz is a second round draft pick. If he was so highly regarded, he wouldn't have slipped.

he, i loved watching poz at beaver stadium, it just ain't the same w/o poslusny's posse in the front row.

we'll have to have this conversation in 3 years to know for sure, but i was sad to see them pass. the great thing about finding unnoticed talent is that you don't end up with a bunch of egos on your team.

Exactly. I doubt the Steelers are regretting the selection of one player over another a full one game into each player's respective NFL careers.

Well, my draft wish list for pick #15 was Adam Carriker. Seeing as though he wasn't there, I wanted us to trade down and take Posluzny. The jury is still out of Timmons, but he just doesn't seam like an ideal fit for what we do within the confines of our defensive system. There aren't many 6'0" 230 lb 3-4 OLBs for a reason. People try and compare him to Greg Lloyd being as though they are similiar sized, but forget to take into account that when Greg Lloyd was drafted and in his prime there were very few 300+ lb O-Lineman. Never mind the 6'6" 340 lb behemoths of todays NFL....

Not to mention that Lloyd played pissed off every down.

However, maybe they are planning on using Timmons in coverage more often...if so you need a more athletic LB.

i thought we brought timmons in for his pass rushing ability more than anything? the guy who had the better instincts was Poz.
